Getting Emotional About Books? – Infinity Dreams Award (Part 2)

Happy Sunday!

Hello! In case you were wondering, we’re Sarah & Faith and this is the second half of the Infinity Dreams Award which we have been nominated for by Jess at Mud and Stars (thank you!) many MANY moons ago. Here we go!


1.Which fictional character is most like you?

Faith: Like I said in the other award, I guess I’d connect with Leo and Percy’s humour the most.

Sarah: … … … Literally no one. Can you find me one sassy, impulsive, Arab Canadian in YA literature? Nah.

2. Which books have made you cry?

F: I’ve mentioned this before too but Black Beauty. I haven’t really cried for many books though. Internally I have. If you didn’t know, Salt to the Sea was pretty grief-inducing. (I mean, I do become an emotional wreck and I cry but I’m not physically bawling the Niagara Falls. But internally I am. Same difference.) 

Niagara Falls, everybody. (Technically called Horseshoe Falls but they’re all technicalities.) After having gone on about 12 trips there (I’ve literally counted), you’re somewhat not so amazed anymore. But this shot is pretty epic. You could get hotel rooms with this view. Pretty cool, I guess.

I should also mention, my book. My future presently unwritten book. If you assume that I’m going to say something along the lines of “I’d cry because of how horrible it would be”, then yes. You would be correct.

S: Speak. And we shall never converse about this speech ever again. Continue reading

Sunshine Blogger Award & A Pancake vs Waffle Showdown

 

Yay, my first banner! (And I took the photo :3) Any thoughts? ~Faith

The Real Neat Blog Award!

Mucho gracias to Amy at Curiouser and Curiouser for nominating us! (This has definitely been long over due!) Check out her incredibly interesting blog 😀

1. Who is your favourite book/film/tv show character?

F: Leo Valdez hands down. And Percy. And Nine from Lorien Legacies. (A lot of people find him annoying but sometimes he’s just hilarious… and I too am sensing a pattern here. All of these three are the comic relief in action-y books.) Shahrzad (The Wrath and the Dawn) is also a great heroine.

S: Ummm… Cinder? Percy? Agnieszka? Humourous people in general? Am I allowed to list them by genre or book (and would you guys be willing to read a mile of writing)?

2. If you could choose to meet any famous person (alive or dead), who would you choose and why?

F: I’d meet poet Sarah Kay because her work inspires me to write and she does word play like some people play chess. 😉

S: JK Rowling because she WROTE HARRY POTTER, one of the most defining books of the past 2 and present 2 generations.

Elizabeth the Second? (Who am I kidding, I’m not even British.)

3. Are you a Harry Potter fan? Be honest.

F: I think we’ve established that I haven’t read enough of the books to be a legitimate hardcore fan. But I think I would be if I did finish the series. Right? There’s a lot of peer pressure though… (haha)

S: UM YES. YES YES YES YES. I even managed to infect some of my other friends into even more hardcore fans. For some reason, Faith seems immune ~ I’m still working on infecting her 😛

Did I mention how much I love her?
